Hamper for Nicole Kidman

Nicole Kidman was allegedly reduced to tears when her two adopted teenage children sent a hamper of gifts to her and her new baby,  by way of congratulations, when her little girl was born recently.

Nicole Kidman has two adopted children, Isabella who is 18 and Connor who is 16, that have been living with their adopted father, Tom Cruise, since him and Nicole divorced in 2001. She is now married to Keith Urban and their second baby, Faith Margaret, was born on the 28th December 2010.

The Australian born actress met her Australian husband in Hollywood, when they were both attending an event honouring Australians. He is a country music singer, guitarist and song writer and moved to USA in 1992. He has worked with various groups but has also found fame as a solo artist. He has had ten number one singles and is still recording and will be touring this year. It was apparently six months after they first met, when they began dating and they were married about a year later in a ceremony in Australia.

Nicole Kidman has had an interesting career. She started off having many television roles in Australia s well as some film parts. It was when she appeared with Tom Cruise in ‘Days of Thunder’ that she began to get recognition and then her role in ‘Batman Forever’ was her breakthrough. Ever since she has starred in many films and even since having her children has continued to work, although she pulled out of one film while she was pregnant. She also works very hard for charity raising money and awareness for various causes including breast cancer, which her mother suffered from when she was young  and violence against women and families.

It is reported that her teenage children sent her a hamper by way of congratulations and as a gesture of acceptance towards their new step-sister. Nicole was said to be really happy at what they had done, so much so that she had cried. She was obviously extremely happy at the birth of her daughter anyway but to have this lovely gift from her two older children, was something which she had not expected and that made her even happier.

Nicole and Keith have a two year old daughter called Sunday Rose as well, who Nicole gave birth to on 7th July 2008. Their first daughter, has the middle name Rose, after Nicole’s late grandmother.  Their recent baby was born using a surrogate mother although is biologically theirs. Her husband has announced that he does not want their daughter being used for any promotion or PR.

It was said that the beautiful gift basket contained some of the favourite cupcakes of Nicole’s with a mobile from Pottery Barn for the baby. It also contained some gift vouchers for a clothes shop called ‘American Girl Place’ and a toy shop. The items were written out to Sunday. She said that it was an extremely thoughtful gift and she was delighted with it.

Most Talented Actresses

Sometimes, we see actresses rise to the top of stardom because they seem to have it altogether – they have the hot looks, they have the fashion, and they have the business sense. But then we see there careers sort of die out along the way, and we realize that we never really saw them do a fantastic job in the acting category of the trade – a lot of times, we forget that the most talented actresses are the ones that can ACT like no others can, and that is what we will examine here – leading ladies who not only have it in the looks category, but who can follow it up with the ability to make us believe in the characters they portray.

Kate Winslet

This talented actress has repeatedly shown us her ability to diversify, be real, and be believable. She has played so many vivid characters that we often do not think of Kate Winslet as a person, but rather as a collection of characters. When you hear someone say that they like Kate Winslet in Titanic but not in Revolutionary Road, then you have realized something… that one, you are thinking of her CHARACTERS, not of Kate Winslet herself. And two, you have realized that an actress who has managed to do THAT, is one who can most definitely act.

Jennifer Aniston

From Friends to the Break Up to Management, Jennifer Aniston has been capturing our hearts with her amazing talent that can turn on a hair and captivate us with her sadness and with the plight of her character but then, have us roaring out loud with laughter at her incredibly good humor and subtle use of wit. Jennifer Aniston is one of the best, and everyone knows it.

Nicole Kidman

Nicole Kidman has been known throughout Hollywood as an actress who conforms to her character totally, completely, and uncompromisingly. She has played so many impressive roles that it is hard to separate them all in our minds… and she holds the audience in such control that she must be one of the strongest leading ladies to ever act in Hollywood, ever. And for her age, she is still amazingly beautiful!

Ten hottest women of 2009

Of course, everyone has their opinion… which is why this list is compiled by AVERAGE… so don’t get angry if your “dream gal” isn’t here… this is just what MOST people are saying. Having said that, these are, indeed,  the women who have come to be considered the ten hottest girls in 2009. You can look, drool, gape, and let your tongue hang out of your mouth… but DO NOT get burnt (metaphorically, of course.). Because one thing that IS for sure is that these women are hot, no doubt.
